Say hello to Yoko the meerkat

11 August 2010 by David

Our Name the Meerkat competition is now closed and the team at World Museum have chosen a winner! We had some great names suggested – Florence, Meercartney, Scrunchie – but the name that really stood out as being the team’s favourite was Yoko, suggested by Charlotte Kenny, who came to World Museum on Saturday 7 August with her family to collect her prizes. Congratulations Charlotte!

Charlotte won a goody bag of meerkat treats, presented to her by Stephen Rowlands from Tropical Inc, the owners of Yoko and lots of other exotic animals who visit World Museum. Check out the other names suggested on the World Museum Facebook page.

If you love wildlife there are lots of Wild Wild World events on at World Museum as part of the International Year of Biodiversity, and the fab exhibition Plantastic! is on until 5 September – find out about the amazing world of plants whatever the weather outside!
